Depending on the season we have between 20 and 30 teams at Hythe LTC, competing in a variety of local leagues. In the summer we enter teams in the Kent, Ashford, East Kent, Dover & District and National leagues whilst in the winter our teams play in the Kent, Ashford and Deal Indoor leagues. Most of our teams play doubles but our National League teams play singles as well.
The club’s policy regarding match play is to try and include all players who wish to play competitive tennis, providing they meet the minimum standard for match play. This is determined by our coaches, who grade all the club’s match players according to the International Tennis Federation’s colour scheme and work with our Match Secretary to ensure players are allocated to the right team for their skill level.
For more information or to be considered for the club’s teams please contact our Match Secretary, Fiona Michie, at [email protected]
This winter we are tentatively dipping our toes back into competitive tennis, with the leagues starting up again in October. Of course, this may all change with Covid regulations constantly changing and local lockdowns being imposed. But for now, our teams will be competing. There will be no post-match teas, no group travel to away matches and details of all our visitors will be logged for track and trace purposes. We are doing everything we can to safeguard all of our members and visitors at this challenging time. Click on the Tab above for details on our Fixtures for 2020.
Note: if we feel the situation with matches is becoming too risky, our teams will be withdrawn.
